2010 has definitely been good to Nicki Minaj. Love it it or hate it, she’s been a ubiquitous presence that has forced the world to take notice, racking up countless song features, magazine spreads, music videos and a Grammy nod just one week after her much anticipated debut Pink Friday dropped. Her latest (previously leaked) single Moment 4 Life featuring Drake is triumphant and bold, with T-Minus contributing riveting production that aids the listener in visualizing such an epic endeavor. It’s refreshing to be reminded that Nicki CAN carry a song by herself - comparing herself to David slaying Goliath with a rock was dope - but that being said, Drake’s contribution adds absolutely nothing, disrupting the sincerity of the emotion she displays (sorry Drizzy, I just don’t think it worked out for you this time). And to top it all off, Nicki can also carry a tune, which you’ll hear when you get to the hook. Moment 4 Life hit radio today, so it goes without saying that Ms. Minaj’s ubiquitous presence will be invading even more of your audio space in the days to come.
